Destination ManagementPack greyed out for override on all objects of class Server 2008 Domain Controller RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     I'd like to create an override that affects a warning shown on all DCs. The option to pick a destination MP is greyed out.

    If I select a specific DC for this override, then I can pick a destination MP.

    Should I be able to pick a destination MP for an override set on all DCs?

    Thanks

  • Hi

    If you are trying to override for a group (and that groups is in an unsealed management pack) then the override will automatically be saved to that Management Pack.

  • 1) Is this a custom rule \ monitor? If so, you can only save overrides to the same MP (unless you have sealed the MP).

    Otherwise, depending on the exact monitor \ rule, you should have options to override for:

    - all objects of class : <<The class the monitor \ rule is targetted at >>

    - for a group

    - for a specific object of class

    - for all objects of another class

    Which are you trying to choose? You should be able to choose the top one and choose a management pack to save the override to (or create on to save it to) unless this is a custom rule \ monitor in an unsealed MP.

    Cheers

  • Ah, so the only way I could do this is to create a new group, add all DCs to that group and then put the override in a new MP for the group?
